Artists' Special Offer: 105 Years of Glass

Kelsey Murphy and Robert Bomkamp designed and created a very
special piece as a gift to Nancy and George Fenton. This cameo
carved vase was Ruby glass with an overlay of Milk Glass, and the
intricate carving featured Fenton factory scenes of skilled
glassworkers and talented decorators.
In 2010, Kelsey and Bob designed and created a few similar
of this cameo vase, using a different Ruby/Milk glass vase shape.
These were put aside as we pursued other projects, and we are now
to offer these remarkable vases for sale.

techniques, each piece is carefully sandcarved, by hand, using
aluminum oxide crystals under pressure to take away some of the
surface. Great individual skill and experience are needed to
control this operation, as many distinct stages of successive
cameo carving are required to create the remarkable depth and the
